Equipment

  • Knife
  • Cutting Board

Ingredients

  • 1 package round Rice Paper Wrappers (about 20) (see note)
  • 1 head Romaine Lettuce, torn into pieces
  • 1 bunch Fresh Basil Leaves (Thai basil will work best, but any other variety will do)
  • 1 Red Pepper, cut into thin strips
  • 1 Carrot, cut into thin strips
  • 1 Cucumber, cut into thin strips
  • 1 Mango, cut into thin strips
  • 1 Avocado, cut into thin strips (squeeze a little lemon over this if you won’t serve it right away)
  • Hoisin-Peanut Dipping Sauce (recipe below)

Instructions

  • Set out all ingredients listed above. Just before serving, soak 1 rice paper at a time in water until it becomes soft and shake to drain. Lay rice paper out on a large plate or cutting board. Add ingredients of choice in a line across the lower quarter of the paper in the following order – lettuce, basil, red pepper, carrot, cucumber, mango, avocado.
  • Close the rolls by folding the left and right sides of the paper towards the middle and rolling up tightly from the bottom of the roll.
  • Serve immediately with Hoisin-Peanut Dipping Sauce.

Notes

Rice paper wrappers can be found in the Asian section in most grocery stores with other dry goods - most often they are labeled as Thai or Vietnamese. The kind used for this recipe are never refrigerated or frozen. They are crisp like a cracker when you buy them but become soft and pliable when soaked in water for a minute.
